Talk on the Lickey Hills to take place in Droitwich on Wednesday

Updated: 12:48 am, Feb 26, 2016

THE HISTORY of the Lickey Hills will be the subject of an illustrated talk being held in the John Corbett Room at Droitwich Community Hall, Heritage Way.

The presentation, being given by George Gascoyne at 7.30pm on Wednesday (March 2), will give an insight into the 524-acre country park’s past.

Archaeological records show the area, ten miles south of Birmingham, dates back to the Stone Age and the Roman road from Worcester which goes through Droitwich passed over the hills.

More recently the hills were part of the defences of Britain during the Second World War.

Everyone is welcome to the event which has been organised by Droitwich History and Archaeology Society.

Admission is £2 for members and £4 for friends and visitors.
